CBS’ new drama “Doubt” had an unconvincing premiere Wednesday night, managing only a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. That’s below the average for “Code Black” in the time period earlier in the season. “Criminal Minds” (1.3) improved a tenth on last week, and “Hunted” was even at 1.2.
ABC led the night in the 18-49 demographic, although it was off slightly from last week. “The Goldbergs” (1.8) and “Black-ish” (1.5) are currently even with last week, but “Modern Family” (2.0, -0.2), “Speechless” (1.5, -0.1) and “Match Game” (0.9, -0.1) all came down a bit.
“Lethal Weapon” ticked up to a 1.4 for FOX, but “Star” declined a tenth of a point to 1.2. “The 100” (0.4) and “Arrow” (0.6) both equaled their numbers from last week on The CW. “Law & Order: SVU” fell a tenth to 1.5 for NBC, but “Blindspot” and “Chicago PD” held steady with last week.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.4/5||1.3/5||1.2/5||1.1/4||0.5/2|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
